Why do many of us know so little about WWI? Perhaps because America entered the war during its last year? Or is it because few understood shell shock and how to process the horrors of the trenches? While WWII is known for the “greatest generation,” WWI produced the “lost generation.” But WWI is not lost to Framingham.
As the centenary of Armistice approaches in November this exhibit features seven local men and women whose stories speak to the larger forces at play in the first war that engulfed the world. Innovations around flight and technology, the impact of the influenza pandemic, pacifism and suffrage are just some of the threads tying Framingham to WWI.

The Mill Contemporary Art is a newly created art studio and gallery space in Saxonville Mills. We will be holding Second Friday openings monthly starting May 11. I hope you can make the Second Friday event this month, or another month in the near future. This month's gallery exhibit includes five local print makers and showcases a variety of processes and visions.
We are excited to be creating a vibrant arts scene in Framingham, and that our mill neighbors, such as Makerspace, are joining in on our opening this month.
